"All of the southern women in my book club love to eat. Each month we choose a potluck theme. The theme this month was 'Soul Food Throw Down.' Our dessert this month was blackberry cobbler. This is an easy recipe that uses canned blackberries. It's best with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream."

cold vegetable shortening
2 (15 ounce) cans
blackberries in syrup
Living in the PNW, it was almost NOT possible for me to make this recipe with canned blackberries. Oregon is known for their Blackberries for "crying-out-loud!" I wanted to rate it fairly, so I did use canned. (can't believe I did that) Anyway, I really liked that the cobble had a bottom. That's something I will do from now on when baking ANY cobbler. Here's what I didn't like about this recipe. Shortening in the crust. Next time I make, I will use butter. The flavor was good, but I would have prefered to use fresh blackberries. It was really just "good," not great.
Pretty dang good!
This was really good! I subbed blueberries for the blackberries and also used unsalted butter for the shortening. It was delicious with fresh whipped cream.... Thank you!
